It’s no secret that sneakers are Penn’s most beloved shoe. And why not? They’re God’s gift to college students everywhere: comfortable, easy, and now – with the rise of athleisure – fashionable. But if your Stan Smiths are looking a little worse for wear, it might be time to invest in something new for the upcoming spring season. We’ve rounded up some (non-basic) options that will have you turning heads on Locust.
What screams spring more than a classic floral print? This pair from Jackye contrasts a “dad sneaker” with a delicate, feminine floral.
Make a color statement in monochromatic kicks. Accents like ruffles (we love this pair from Tory Burch) add extra interest and make these a showstopper.
We saw embellishments all over the runway this season, and now we want them everywhere – including our feet. Try slip-ons in a neutral color (like these from Keds) to elevate your everyday look.
“Ugly” sneakers and pastels? A match made in streetwear heaven. If you’re a high-fashion junkie, this is the shoe that will bring your look into springtime.
A pair of Seavees’ signature gingham sneakers is guaranteed to get you complimented in class. Pair them with light wash jeans and a white tee for an effortless look this season.
Combinations like these from Vince give you the comfort of a slip on, with the woven motif of an espadrille. They’re an undeniably springy take on your usual slip-on that will pair perfectly with your wardrobe.
The return of spring marks the return of Dalmatian print. This pair of sneakers from APL offers not only a unique spin on the print (hello, gold), but also great support that can take you from class to Pottruck without missing a beat.
